    Long overdue, here are some quick snaps from my phone.

    View from Taipei 101. It only cost 15 bucks to go on there. It has the fastest elevator in the world.

    All my belongings for 6 months. The yellow bag is a protection bag for my backpack for checking it into an airplane. The big backpack has my clothes and toiletries, the small one all my electronic shit.

    Hello Kitty-themed airline at the airport. Only in Asia.

    Thank you for sharing!You must be having the best time and it's great that you are doing this. I can't believe how clean it is. How much time did you spend on the Hello Kitty machines ;)

    It looks like Beth designed it herself.
    Kittens and ATM's.
    If the machine on the end was some kind of purse dispenser this could be a section of the 10 million dollar closet.

    Nice, Rench! I love Formosa.

    It's kind of like China, only you can breathe the air. :D

    $100 Taiwanese Dollars is like 2 bucks. Me and 2 friends had a huge breakfast in some small local place for $5. That's total for the 3 of us, including coffee.
    Thanks!
    Yeah, it's fun. Quite the adventure. I'm couch surfing right now... in some random house in Sydney. Tomorrow I'm going to the local hostel.
    Taiwan really has its own vibe. The night market was great.
    People were really nice and polite, too. So far I've come to the conclusion that the Chinese in general are pieces of shit compared to the Taiwanese.

    The air quality was really bad, though! All those little scooters cause horrible pollution. There also were a couple of huge coal power plants coughing out nastiness.

    Oh wow. Learn something new every day. Well the air quality certainly doesn't look as bad in your pictures as compared to what we see in China. :D

    China is even way worse, but that doesn't mean it was good here. Especially if you compare it to some of the nicer European & American cities. I'd say the average air quality there was comparable to an extraordinary bad day in my home city.

    Thanks!

    Fireworks for Chinese new year. It was way louder and more violent than any fireworks I've seen so far.
